Community Spirit


One of the defining principles of our firm is supporting the community in which we live and work.

Community involvement is a long standing firm tradition – from the United Way Days of Caring Program, to the Pushor Mitchell Kelowna Apple Triathlon, to the pro bono legal services we provide, members of the firm contribute through donations of time and money to a broad range of activities, including:

We are pleased to partner with UBC Okanagan and the Pushor Mitchell Gold Medal Leadership Prize which is a $10,000 annual prize for a top graduating student who demonstrates academic excellence and outstanding leadership. It is available to a student who graduates from the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences. Recipients of the award include Shirley Hutchinson (2011), Liam Randhawa (2012) and Karly Drabot (2013).

Pushor Mitchell was proud to once again support the United Way Days of Caring Program which connects workplace volunteers with projects in the community. On October 23, 2013, we closed our office for the afternoon, rolled up our sleeves and went out in the community. We volunteered our time, talent and energy at the following organizations: Arion Therapeutic Farm, Branch 55 Seniors Association, HOPE Outreach, Kelowna Community Food Bank, NOW Canada Safe Home, Ozanam House, Pathways Abilities Society, Salvation Army and Springvalley Care Centre.
